About Google Glass
Google Glass is a wearable computer that is currently being developed by the technology giant. The glass displays information on the eyepiece and can connect to the internet when instructed through voice commands. It is being worked on by the same team who are developing Driverless cars (Google X) and while at the time it is still in the testing phase, it is hoped that it will become a mainstream consumer device, such as a smartphone.
Google Glass is controlled by a touchpad on the side of the product. This allows the user to swipe through an interface to display information such as weather and current events, as well as photos and social networking updates. It is equipped with a camera, which not only takes stills, but also unto 720p HD video content.
Although it is still in development, there are already a number of apps that have been developed for Google Glass. As you might expect, these are largely Google?s own products, such as Gmail, Google Maps and Google+. In April 2013, Google launched an API for the product, and a number of third party developers are working on apps for photos, facial recognition, translations and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
At the time of writing, Google Glass is available in limited numbers and is mainly being shipped from sellers in the United States. Before parting with any money, buyers are encouraged to verify the authenticity of sellers and check listings carefully, to ensure they are sure of what they are purchasing.
